My daughter’s selection of an apartment,just overlooking the mountains&the Sea,was most enjoyable for us & we can never forget the Xmas,New Year celeberations of 12/13 in our Lifetime!hb apt3
Houtbaai, named by Dutch explorers, literally translated means Wood Bay.The Dutch needed timber for their settlement & Houbay provided them enough


Jan van Riebeeck described Hout Bay as having the most beautiful forests he had ever seen. The timber was used to help build the fort at Cape Town and the subsequent port that grew to Cape Town city.
